Our Israeli correspondent MC sent this note last night about the latest Palestinian gift to Sderot:
We’ve just had one of those wretched missiles over. The alarm went off as I was putting some stuff in the car — we had had Shabbat dinner with relatives and were just loading up to return home. There was no way that I could get to the nearest shelter, which was about 100 yards away, so I had a bad moment. Then I heard it buzzing about 300 feet over me. It went over the park then there was the white flash of the explosion and a bang over towards where we live.
The alarms are scary enough, but the buzz and the bang and the flash are spiritually disruptive.
Here we are, a civilian population under missile attack, it should be a war crime. If it were the other way round there would be howls of rage and arrest warrants, but we don’t count.
The missile exploded in a Gan (kindergarten) but at 11pm on Shabbat there was nobody there, thankfully.

Below is the brief report from Arutz Sheva:
Gaza Rocket Explodes in Sderot
The “Red Alert” rocket siren was heard on Friday night in the Sderot and the Shaar Hanegev area of southern Israel.
A rocket fired by Gaza terrorists exploded a short time later in an empty kindergarten in the city of Sderot.
There were no injuries, but the building sustained damage.
Rocket and mortar fire from Gaza has continued to “trickle” into Israel on occasion despite a ceasefire which Gaza’s Hamas rulers agreed to.
